IM-VME modular, pipeline vision processor is for applications requiring sophisticated real-time image processing and analysis capabilities. The processor is driven by a 40 MHz pipeline architecture and can process a 512 x 512 pixel image through multiple computational algorithms in less than 7.5 msec. Catalog describes VME bus-based processors and their design for high-speed inspection and machine-guidance tasks, advanced image analysis applications, and research and defense-related projects where speed and accuracy is essential.

A few weeks ago, Ford Motor Co. quietly announced that it was rolling out a new wrinkle to the powerful safety feature called stability control, adding even more lifesaving potential to a technology that has already been very successful.
It won't be too much longer and hardware design, as we used to know it, will be remembered alongside the slide rule and the Karnaugh map. You will need to move beyond those familiar bits and bytes into the new world of software centric design.
People who want to take advantage of solar energy in their homes no longer need to install a bolt-on solar-panel system atop their houses -- they can integrate solar-energy-harvesting shingles directing into an existing or new roof instead.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
